port authority police officer in new york and new jersey, buried 13 hours in the world trade center. i want everybody to understand i came from a different country and i love this country i served the military and came out and became a cop. what i want everybody to know and want president obama to know, i feel like our country is divided. we need to come together as one. i get to talk to kids. the lady, the mother of that evil kid that shot those kids should have had enough common sense to think, hey, you know what i should be a responsible gun owner and take these guns and lock them out. out of the house and what i want people to remember is our flag is made out of the blood of patriots, do not give up your rights because when you give up your rights you're going to fight with blood to get the rights back. and that second amendment has given us every other amendment and as a sportsman, as a cop, guns are not the problem. we need to become a better country, need to become better parents and responsible. if we're responsible americans, human beings with
3:01am
our case, this country with be greater. >> i want to apologize we didn't get to hear from everybody tonight. i promise we will bring you back. it's sad a lot of media outlets won't give bothhhhh >> alisyn: good morning, everyone. it's saturday, january 19th. i'm alisyn camerota. thanks for joining us so early. the manti te'o now speaking out about that dead girlfriend hoax that cap -- cap vacated the nation. how he went wrong and how he was downd. >> duped. >> the journal news finally removes the gun owners from web site. is it too little too late why are they staying defiant even now. >> lance armstrong's apology. >> you supported me forever through all of, this and you believed, and i lied to you.
3:02am
and i'm sorry. >> he wasn't apologizing to oprah there. he was apologizing to everyone else. more on his message to those with cancer he wants to -- he once inspired. can they forgive and forget? "fox & friends" starts now. >> top of the morning to you. welcome to "fox & friends" on this saturday morning. it is so nice to see you. welcome to tucker. welcome to it ali. >> alisyn: thank you, thank you. nice to be with you guys. yesterday that's all we could talk about. manti te'o. >> clayton: weirder this morning. >> alisyn: i guess. i feel like he has clarified it a little bit. he had an interview with espn yesterday in which he talked about how it was possible that for three years he had a girlfriend, he thought, but he never met her. she was an imaginary
3:03am
girlfriend that he did talk to on the phone a lot. and that he had lots of internet, you know, exchanges with social media. tuck tuck it can happen. here is what he said. quote: i knew that it was crazy i never met her i didn't meet. alone people find out that this girl who died so i was invested in it. i didn't meet it as well. i tailored my story yeah he met her before she passed away. i wasn't faking it. i wasn't part of it. when people hear the facts they will know there is is no way i could have been part of this. >> he did admit in this interview, he tailored his story to his father and to his family. he sort of revised the time line so that it wasn't odd when they wondered why he hadn't ever met this woman. he says that he actually met her prior to her death. that's what he told his parents so that they wouldn't think he was odd for not having ever met this girl?
3:04am
here is what jeremy says he learned in the interview when he sat down with te'o. he lied to his father about having met this young woman. he tried to speak with her via skype and face time on several occasions. the person on the other end when the call would go through skype.e was what he called a like skype wasn't working that day. >> i love -- i don't understand that what in the world happened here. i'm trying to face time you on an iphone. that's what he was trying to do with her. the other person would have to receive the call, right? so that someone's face would appear. so, what, is there just like a blank screen? >> yes. tuck tuck that actually does happen. >> clayton: not on face time. >> alisyn: this happens all the time. >> clayton: they must have had in this situation a woman when he was on the phone with her on a regular basis. so even when he would try to skype they would go to this weird
3:05am
black box and they would have a woman's voice. tuck tuck you are a world renown gadget expert. for the rest of us even linebackers at notre dame this is plausible. you are perceptive, do you believe him? >> alisyn: i actually do believe him. the part i find most confound something 19 or 20-year-old guy would never need physical contact with his beautiful hot girlfriend. that's the part where it seems like at some point after three months a college guy would say come on. tuck tuck wait a second. maybe it is -- maybe that's the explanation right there. he is 19 or 20. this is the world he has grown up in where so much human interaction does take place over the internet. it is we billiarding to us who are we willarding to us where you talk to people face-to-face where face tame is the way you communicate. >> alisyn: let -- that's a great point.
3:06am
yes, this generation cease things differently. >> he goes one accept further he is a huge start at notre dame. i went to the university of pittsburgh. the football players there were kept in a bubble, right? they are not allowed to go out and do certain things and kept in this sort of bubble. maybe that was his reaction. he is on the phone and the internet. he said he admitted at one point i was in school it never occurred to me to go to the hospital and visit her. >> alisyn: by the way that was another fabrication she was sick. one fabrication he was told she was in the car accident and in the hospital and they would talk on the phone all the time. obviously there was a woman part of this scam to dupe him. not just a male catfishing. obviously he had an accomplish. here is another thing we found out in the espn interview. manti did plan to meet this imaginary girlfriend several times to meet in person but she at the last minute always called off the meeting or he would even go to the meeting place and there was somebody else sent in her place with an
3:07am
excuse. >> clayton: that happened to me in college a lot. >> alisyn: this has to ring true to you. you had many imaginary girlfriends. >> clayton: meet at the student union and somebody else sent. my name is jeremy you were waiting for marissa she couldn't happen today. women would show up or men show up. this sounds like larger plot if you have all of these people conspiring: the fact that they had a guy answering the phone at certain times and put the phone next to a fake ventilator he would sleep through the night listening to this fake ventilator. it was a way he felt she could cope through the night. guy answers the phone who he thought was cousin or brother and then would put the phone next to a ventilator sound on some computer. i mean, this elaborate hoax. >> would anybody ever admit to tales this embarrassing if he was lying?
3:08am
i thought this guy ginned up this whole story to get the heisman trophy. after watching clips of this irchted view i feel sorry for him. i think he was actually taken in. >> alisyn: talk a quaint tans at notre dame who knew him. he has been writing at notre dame about this whole story. he will be at our show lye. in the meantime get to our evidence lines. >> clayton: let us know what you think about that at friends@foxnews.com. >> alisyn: american hostage frederick pitssio died during yesterday's rescue attempt. 12 hostage have been killed since the raids started on wednesday. there are americans still being held at this hour. u.s. officials rejected an offer by the terrorists to release two americans for the release of two convicted terrorists, including the blind sheikh omar abdel rockman that's the man behind the world trade center
3:09am
bombing. the mexican man who confessed to killing border agent brian terry during a univision interview is apparently lying. the fbi says gustavo cruise lozano brought in for questioning and admitted he was not telling the truth us just so he could get more attention. is he being charged in another case of threatening to kill a sheriff in texas. after harsh backlash the journal news we moving gun owner's names and addresses from their web site. president janet hathens decision to remove the maps was not because of the strong criticism lodged at her she says, quote, the data base has been public for 27 days and we believe those who wanted to do it have already done. so the decision comes days after two houses listed on the maps were burglarized. well, just before the second inauguration, the white house released president obama's new official portrait. and in it the president stands in the oval office with arms
3:10am
crossed and a big smile. while he looks more relaxed he also looks more gray. the portrait on the left will hang in all of the u.s. embassies around the world. and all the federal buildings here in the u.s. yes, being president ages you, which is why i am not running. >> his presidency has aged me i can say. >> let's check in with rick reichmuth now who is looking younger by the day. >> he has got the news anchor pose. >> body language is like hey, i'm not open to you. >> back off. >> back off i have got a second term. >> that's probably more like it. here is your temps as you are waking up this morning. not that bad anywhere. enjoy it because it's going to change. i was hinting to this last week there is big changes temperaturewise coming and they are on the way. prescription looking precipitation wise looking good. nothing that's going to cause major problems. we will see lake-effect snow
3:11am
next three to five days. some spots see big snowfall totals. that's in those areas prone to lake-effect snow. you are used to that this time of year. temps much better than where you were certainly earlier this week. these are the cold temperatures that are all bottled up across parts of canada and in towards alaska. look at this here, getting very close to the u.s. northern border. we will start to see the air make its way towards the northern plains and great lakes through much of this week. see that little pink there today? that's just the beginning hint of it temps not that bad anywhere. tomorrow, those temps start to drop. we're going to be only to 4 in minneapolis for your day on sunday. go towards the day on monday and we're not going to get above zero in minneapolis. that will be the coldest you have been in the last four years. 13 in chicago on monday. that cold air sweeps towards the eastern seaboard by tuesday and wednesday. a lot of people are going to get in on it. with that said, not much precipitation. that's the bright side. >> negative 3 in minneapolis.
3:12am
>> let's talk about the debt ceiling because all eyes were on this potential new controversy that was about to happen as we were just past the fiscal cliff. now we are going to hit the debt ceiling debasement now it appears house g.o.p. members are putting forth this idea. maybe a bit of an olive branch saying three month extension in the debt ceiling would enable them to come to some sort of a deal not without caveats on spending. turk turk tied to. the budget. the senate hasn't in three years. unless the senate comes up with a budget by april 15th. no more pay for members of congress. which might be a stimulus of its own kind. >> alisyn: there is a new fox news poll about how americans are feeling about this. all of our budget battles. here is the question we asked. is government spending being managed carefully or out of control? not surprisingly now 83% of
3:13am
you say that it is out of control verses just 11% who say it's managed carefully and those numbers have become more extreme in the past two and three years. >> here is another big question we asked you fox news poll should the debt limit be raised again? of course it's been raised every year. the majority of you said only after major cuts are put in place. 69%. yes, it would be reckless not to raise the debt ceiling. >> which of course is president obama's position, 23% one there because he says this is like we have run up our credit card bill. this is like not paying your credit card bill. we have already spent that money so you have to raise the debt ceiling. some people say stop the madness. whatever the repercussions are stop it, cap it now. if we have to default we will. maybe we can skirt default somehow. seem like majority of respondents feel that way. >> 83% say spending is out of control.
3:14am
of that wonder i wonder how many have idea how big the debt is 16. it doesn't matter in absolute dollars this is the biggest debt that's ever existed and our credited rating has been down graded as a result of it? >> i remember as a kid i don't know elementary school or junior high when bewere talking about the debt it was something like 4 trillion. and our teachers asked us to wrap our heads around that number. try wrapping your head around 16 trillion. i just can't imagine. to pay that down how many years that would take. even with being smart with government spending. >> it's larger than our entire economy just to put it in some scale here. >> that's a problem. yeah. i remember when i was a kid going to the gas station and thinking wow why the time i can drive gas is probably going to be a dollar a gallon. i actually remember thinking that. here is what is coming up. president obama wants to do everything in his power to prevent another shooting, of course, like that one in new town. does his gun control plan miss the mark?
3:15am
we will talk to a gun owner about his thoughts next. >> talk about a tough break. a robber busts into a liquor store through a vent. unsuspecting turn. shelf lands on shelf full of liquor. a "starving artist" has an allstate agent? he got me... [ dennis' voice ] the allstate value plan. it's their most affordable car insurance and you still get an agent. [ normal voice ] i call it... [ dennis' voice ] the protector. is that what you call it? the protector! okay. ♪ the allstate value plan. are you in good hands?
3:16am
living with moderate to semeans living with pain.is it could also mean living with joint damage. humira, adalimum, can help treat more than just the pain. for many adults, humira is clinically proven to help relieve pain and stop further joint damage. humira can lower your ability to fight infections, including tuberculosis. serious, sometimes fatal events, such as infections, lymphoma, or other types of cancer, have happened. blood, liver and nervous system problems, serious allergic reactions, and new or worsening heart failure have occurred. before starting humira, your doctor should test you for tb. ask your doctor if you live in or have been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. tell your doctor if you have had tb, hepatitis b,
3:17am
are prone to infections or have symptoms such as fever, fatigue, cough, or sores. you should not start humira if you have any kind of infection ask your rheumatologist about humira, to help relieve your pain and stop further joint damag >> tucker: will the president's plan to crack down on the second amendment make this a safer country? fox news poll ask if they
3:18am
believe that gun laws help stop acts like the newtown shooting? 22 percent said yes. tougher laws can help. 71 percent said no people will still find ways to get and use firearms. does the president's action hit the mark? emily miller joining us from washington. good morning, emily. >> good morning, tucker. >> tucker: is there any evidence that gun control in the united states, a country with a second amendment. you can't ban this tfps not helping. it doesn't change anything. that was banning certain cosmetic features which is what the president wants to do
3:19am
again. there is absolutely no evidence at all that gun laws decrease crime and the reason is simple. the bad guys are already disregarding the laws. they know there are laws against robbery and know there is laws against murder. ownership of a gun is not going to stop them from doing anything. >> tucker: to keep this in perspective from so-called assault rifles, there are about 310 million people in this country. 2011 there were 330 deaths from rifles, and that includes suicide and hunting accidents. so they there are not a lot of crimes, murders being committed with rifles in general. tell me what an assault rifle is. >> well, it depends. now technically an assault rifle originally, the term refers to the military rifles, which are automatic which means you pull a trigger and a lot of bullets come out. now the guns that we are talking at b. at all here semiautomatic. automatic bans regulated since 1934. not used in crimes.
3:20am
different issue. in the early 1980s when the gun control groups started getting active they adopted this term really for fear mongering. assault weapon they use to define and the president using to define any gun that has four cosmetic features, general lay pistol grip so you can hold a rifle easier it looks like a handgun's grip under the gun. what's called a folding stock which is just so you can adjust the rifle to your shoulder. if you are smaller like me you would make it shorter. things like that a bayonet. so these aren't things that have any effect on the functionality of the gun. it's just cosmetic and basically things that look scary. it's not factually going to effect anything and anybody who wants to kill somebody can use any gun because all all the guns except for shotguns and revolvers are semiautomatic. pull the trigger once you get one bullet. that's how they work. these cosmetic things have
3:21am
absolutely no effect except to be scary looking. >> today is gun appreciation day. some of our viewers may not know that january 19th. tell me as a woman living in a city, who has a firearms permit, tell me in what ways do you appreciate guns and how have they changed your life. >> tucker, to be specific d.c. is the only place in the nation where do you not have the right to bear arms. meaning i can't take my gun outside my home. illinois was the last state. a court just overturned that ban recently and the state legislature has a few months to put that into law. i can have a gun. i have a handgun. i have a six hour. it's at home for home protection. however, i can take it out. i will be celebrating gun appreciation day today by taking it to sharp shooter's gun range in virginia. >> tucker: amen. >> and do some target shooting. >> tucker: good for you. a licensed gun owner. thanks emily. >> thanks for having me.
3:22am
>> tucker: manti te'o says he was duped. do the classmates believe that story. a swatted team swarms the home of the kardashians. more on this baffling story next. music: "make someone happy" music: "make someone happy" ♪it's so important to make someone happy.♪ it's so important to make meone happy.♪ ♪make just one someone happy ♪and you will be happy too. a body at rest tends to stay at rest... while a body in motion tends to stay in motion. staying active can actually ease arthritis symptoms. but if you have arthritis, staying active can be difficult. prescription celebrex can help relieve arthritis pain so your body can stay in motion. because just one 200mg celebrex a day

>> headlines for second time over a month. honda announcing a huge recall. the auto giant recalling nearly 7,450,000 odysseys and pilots because of a drivers side airline problem. the air bag may not inflate right because of missing rifts. affected owners will be contacted next month. former new orleans mayor ray nagin indicted on bribery charges. is he accused of taking over $200,000 as well as vacations to hawaii and gentleman makeca. contractors and vendors doing business with the city. in return, prosecutors say, he
3:26am
gave them lucrative city contracts. five other people have already pled guilty in that corruption scheme. >> thanks tucker. notre dame football star manti te'o really seemed to be grieving over an imagine area girlfriend's death last october. >> it came outs convicted. possibly a hoax. how do students at notre dame feel about this bizarre story are they standing by manti. he knows manti te'o. always. >> good morning, thanks for having me, guys. you knew them around campus. do you believe his story do you believe he was duped by hoax? >> everyone on campus is genuine. he has been a very caring guy. he wants to know everybody's story. he has been pretty honest
3:27am
about, you know, in this interview last night that came out that he was duped. the atlantic director for notre dame. full support of the university and his own personal support behind him. what we have known of manti for the last four years this exactly matches up. he he really wanted to care for this girl. he thought this girl was real. he truly was duped by this human being who kind of cat fished him, i guess. >> why was there this silence on campus? it seems there is this criticism emerging a bit about notre dame and that they knew about this. there were some players who at the time of alleged death didn't put l.a.s -- around their neck because they thought it was fake. this story emerged on campus kept quiet or pushed aside. what do you make of that? >> i don't know that it was
3:28am
outright disbelief in manti. there were certainly some skepticism that this relationship was strange. that your players on the team or if you are friends of manti and you hear that he has a girlfriend. you expect to see her. manti is a very likeable guy. he is a very popular guy. so, when reports came out that his girlfriend had died, a lot of people were questioning well, why didn't i know more about this? why hadn't i heard about his girlfriend? it wasn't that people were actively searching to know more information about his personal life but it did seem to kind of it did seem to come out of nowhere. people were asking questions why. and several people knew that he had never really met this girl. so i think there was certainly reasons for skepticism or for people to question what really was extent of this relationship and was it being oversold a little bit? i think that's a fair question to have. >> alisyn: tyler, help us understand. this you are in college. is this such an era of social
3:29am
networking that it's plausible that a college guy could go years without physical contact with his significant other? >> college must be boring these days. let's be honest, tyler, if that's the case. >> i think there is a different era of social media for sure. but it doesn't make it any less unusual of a case that this could happen. it certainly is not commonplace that relationships are only online anymore. most people don't have virtual relationships. but, you know, maybe that goes into something about being a football player, especially at a high profile institution at notre dame that his schedule is so full. manhattany, you know he, manti was an all american player, in the heisman race. he had a the lo of demands. maybe it's just that something like that almost fits his schedule more. i think just the general nature of manti too and hearing a story of a girl having leukemia, he would really take the time to get to
3:30am
know her and understand and try to help her. even if that scenario only came up in, you know, online messaging, he really did look to help this girl. >> clayton: front page of the "new york post" this morning has manti te'o with an actual live real girlfriend now. >> alisyn: or a woman. >> clayton: we know she is real though. that's one big step forward. what is the take on campus? is he with another girl now? do we know? >> alisyn: did he ever have girlfriends on campus? >> tmz reported yesterday that after this girl linae supposedly died that he had a girlfriend on campus for several months. manti acknowledged last night he did have a girlfriend about two months after this linae disappeared. i have heard reports that, you know, he was cheating on linae or this virtual girlfriend and that wasn't the case. he did have a girlfriend
3:31am
afterward for some sympathy. it was nothing like cheating or. manti is certainly entitled to have a girlfriend. >> clayton: before we let you go real quick, what's the mood on campus. >> there a lot of it is sadness for manhattany. but totally in support of manhattany. that he -- he is being viewed as the totally naive and stupid. that is his character and nature. that's what sad he is a genuine person. he thought this relationship was very very substantial and it was to him whether this other person existed or not. but he was -- he cared for this character. and because of that, you feel bad for manti that this is going to follow him for a long time. >> alisyn: yeah. we got it tyler moorehead if you want to read more of tyler
3:32am
moorehead's thoughts check out college fun.com. thanks, tyler. >> thanks for having me. >> clayton: coming up on the show, disgraced cycle ler lance armstrong offering up apology to ones he he inspired. is his apology too little too late?
3:33am
3:34am
3:35am
>> lance armstrong was honest and contrite about his doping. yeah. i will believe it when i see it said manti te'o. [ laughter ] >> two sports stories this week. these are two stories that people can't stop talking about.
3:36am
part 2 of lance armstrong's crying confession last night on the oprah winfrey show. you know. we thought we would get more information i guess about these scan tells. you have a lot of folks who have been following this for a linger time basically saying there was nothing new in these confessions. the anti-doping cataloged all of these things. amount to nothing more than blowing smoke. >> some were invasive. when pressed on some of the key allegations that he did it as recently as 2009 and there are significant reasons, denied and said '05 was the last time he doped. i felt this moment where he talks about his conversation with his son was maybe the one true moment in the interview and kind of poignant. >> clayton: he tears up a little bit here. take a look. >> when this all really started, i saw my son defending me. and saying that's not true. what you are saying about my
3:37am
dad is not true. and it almost goes to this question of why now? >> what did you say? >> i said, listen, there is has been a lot of questions about your dad. my career, whether i doped or did not dope, i have always denied that. and i have always been ruthless and defiant about it that's probably why you trusted me on it. which makes it even sicker. i want you to know it's true. they didn't say but wait, dad, they just accepted it. and i told luke, i said, i said don't defend me anymore. >> alisyn: that's heart breaking, right?
3:38am
>> clayton: see your son out there defending you when you know it's true and you denied it and gone after it legally gone after other people who have publicly come out against you. >> alisyn: for years and you let your kids dangle in the breeze like that. that's so sad and kids want to -- they will forgive their parents. they want their patients to be heros but they will forgive their parents. it took him so long? he has five children. >> tucker: it's not just his children. if you think of all the children who believe. go to kids' school and everyone has a yellow bracelet with his name on it. >> let's talk about that hero thing here. that's interesting. there is this idea and you talk about the cancer patients. the other people who believed in him. held him up as a hero and other people who didn't have cancer who held him up as a hero. michael jordan of cycling. there is this notion i read from a couple of cancer survivors who said we want our heros to bristle a little bit
3:39am
to. have to faced a verse city, to come back. that's what we hold up about them. we see them have to faced a verse city but not to lie and to cheat. >> alisyn: of course. clay he answers that question in this interview oprah about those people who believed in him. listen to this. >> the millions of people who are wearing live strong bracelets weather physically, spiritually or emotionally to themselves. what dues to those millions of people who believed? >> i say i understand anger. your sense of betrayal. do youyou supported me forever. through all of this. and you believed and i lied to you. and i'm sorry. and i will spend -- i will
3:40am
spend and i'm committed to spending as long as i to to amounts knowing full well that i won't -- i won't get very many back. >> clayton: body language expert i am not when you see body language experts or o'reilly show when i are saying something and shaking your head the opposite of what he says he says i am sorry. both times where he he is being conciliatory and is he offering an apology shaking his head the opposite way. >> tucker: read accounts from people who know him best they are all over this morning's paper watch this interview. they are not satisfied that his contrition is real. he held back facts. he continued to lie even as he seemed to come clean. pretty low. >> alisyn: we have aancer survivor coming up on our show whether he he accepts lance's apology. >> tucker: deadly standoff gas plant in algeria moving into fourth day now. we know an american from texas was among the 12 hostage
3:41am
killed in that standoff. peter doocy joins us live from washington with more. peter? >> tucker we learned that frederick who was working at that bp gas facility in algeria appears to have died from a heart attack. when they came in with guns blazing during an attempt to rescue hostage and kill kidnappers. he is the only american casualty we know about. so far there, certainly could be others. we know that u.s. and british officials were not given a heads up by the algerian military about that daring rescue that put so many u.s. and british citizens in direct danger. and those officials are reportedly not happy they were kept out of the loop. but, the hostage lucky enough to escape with their lives are thanking the a algerian government. >> i think they did a fantastic job. i was very impressed with the algerian army. very exciting episode. well, i feel sorry for anybody who has been hurt.
3:42am
[inaudible] friends and family. >> the united states military flew a c 130 and c 17 to algeria to get more than a dozen wounded americans out of there. the algerian government continues to insist on dealing with the terrorists kidnappers on their own. they have not let any western powers like the u.s. or great britain assist them in any way at this bp come pleckets. secretary of state hillary clinton has been in touch with her algerian counterparts. she says utmost care must be taken to it preserve innocent life. at this point her pleas are focused on the six hostage believed to be in captivity at this hour. back to you in new york. >> alisyn: all right. peter doocy thanks so much for that update. up next, new york's new gun laws have one major glitch. it doesn't exempt police. could this stop them from doing their jobs? rod wheeler is going to weigh in on.
3:43am

swatting victims. jenner posted this picture on twitter saying everyone is okay. controversy over new york's new gun control law. reportedly does not exempt law enforcement from its prohibitions cops are exempt. still needs to be put in writing. joining us is fox news contributor and d.c. homicide detective rod wheeler. nice to see you this morning. >> good morning, guys. >> what's the issue here? loophole 7 ammunition limit. basically police are in violation of this current law that governor cuomo signed? >> governor cuomo's office is calling it an oversight. and talk about an oversight. what he they are saying basically is that police officers, security officers, individuals that protect other individuals they have to take three rounds out of their 10 round clip. so they can only carry seven rounds. now, they say they are going to make that change to that law later on this week.
3:48am
why did that happen in the first place? i can tell you why it happened in the first place. this was a law that was rushed through. let's face it. it happened overnight. all of a sudden now you have this new law where cops and everybody supposedly has to reduce the amount of rounds in their clip. the other major problem with this law is who is going to be affected by this law? not the good guys -- i mean not the bad guys but the good guys. the bad guys are going to continue to have 15, 20 and 30 round clips. the hard working honest people who legitimately have weapons. that's who this law is going to address. >> of course. there are about 150 million high capacity magazines already in circulation in the united states. >> sure. >> it's not like you are going to effect those. it sounds to me like governor cuomo never consulted actual law enforcement officers before signing this law. >> surprise, surprise. how many laws do they enact as far as that effects law enforcement or criminals, when they actually consult with police officers. rarely do they do that believe it or not.
3:49am
that's startling. we have a larger debate about military style assault rifles. right after the nra's press conference. police commissioner of new york city ray kelly was angry at the press conference because he thought that the nra should have addressed military assault rifles. that there should have been some concession here. he was specifically talking about new york city. his jurisdiction. can we have a larger debate about this? does this law maybe prestage a larger national law. so military assault style rifle bans, these large capacities, ammunition clips. is that something we will see nationally? will that pass congress? is that something that needs to happen? i want to applaud the president for doing something. that something is probably not what we need to do. who is going to be affected by all of these laws? whether it's reducing the
3:50am
amount of rounds a weapon can handle? whether it's the modification of the weapon. it's only going to be the honest, innocent people that these new laws are going to effect. just like you said, tucker. the love these weapons are already on the street. you enact these new laws. do you think the bad guys are going to come and turn in their 30 round clips? that's not going to happen. >> nobody needs more than seven rounds to defend themselves. it sounds like law enforcement officers think they do need more than that to defend themselves law enforcement officers do need it why do they need it? get a call to go to newtown and we know that individual is not following any kind of law, we're only going to have 7 to 10 rounds in that weapon when that individual display a clip with 30 rounds there? >> how do we stop that stuff then. how do we stop the bullet proof -- the body armor piercing bullets get on the street where the cops have to
3:51am
elevate it one degree higher than that. that seems to be the issue. the politicians are talking around the problem. >> you are exactly right. that's what i have been saying all along, guys. we need to address the causes of the newtown shootings. the causes of the aurora, colorado shootings. what we are doing with the new laws we are addressing the symptoms. you take away the clips. is that going to stop newtown? absolutely not. is that going to stop aurora, colorado absolutely not. we need to address the we need to be focused more on that. our focus needs to be rechanneled to more of the causes instead of the symptoms. >> pretty mindless. rod wheeler, thanks a lot. >> thank you. >> that was illuminating. while millions struggled in the cold and dark because of hurricane sandy. this government big wig was warm and cozy. the reason why? he took home an agency general radar. >> plus, this girl really is on fire. we will tell what major gig

4:12am
have heard from too many grateful community members who consider our decision to post the information contained in the public record to have been a mistake. one of the most inverted sentences ever written. nor she says is our decision made because we were intimidated by those who threatened the safety of our staffers. we know our business is a controversial one and we do not cower, she says while cowering. >> the question is why did they remove it if it wasn't because they were i object tim dated and intimidated and had a change of heart and saw the error of their ways in publishing the names and addresses. >> why can't a newspaper publisher write a declarative sentence? >> alisyn: that's another segment and fascinating. here is why, because there was a law passed. because the journal news did this the lawmakers in albany state capital raced to pass legislation to prevent legal gun holder's addresses and names being publicized. that's why they had to comply with the law now.
4:13am
>> does anyone in your household own a gun? and, you know, a majority 52% of you said yes. this is up from 2000. about 7% up from 2000. so more registered gun owners in households. can i imagine the outrage would be high among you. would you mind having your names and addresses published by a newspaper in your town for doing nothing illegal? having this information. >> tucker: the answer is pretty simple. the implication the whole point of this was to demonize people who own guns and to equate them or in some way tie them to people who committed atrocities like the newtown shooting. that is fundamentally unfair. it was an editorial judgment the paper made in the service of their ideological aims more gun control and they got spanked for it rightly so. >> clayton: there are reports this morning about robberies. >> alisyn: yeah there were two reports of robberies at the homes of people who were on that list. so, we had already heard from.

4:42am
good. the reason why coconut fat or oil is a medium chain fatty acid. in that acid something called luric acid. your body has to work harder to burn through that oil or fat and you speed up your metabolism. >> that that's the snack. >> so i -- soy latte. >> clayton: start with breakfast. wake up in the morning homemade gra nola. i explain how to make it in the book. super simple a whole batch it for the whole week. lots of fiber and some good fats. i have got nuts, seeds in there and pair it up with coconut milk. the benefits of coconut are endless. much better choice. high in vitamin d. high in calcium. high in b 12 and magnesium. >> you need to read the book because she goes really in depth about coconut milk. >> alisyn: imexciteed about

4:56am
film the show but the camera right now over there. you don't hire a photographer to merely be present. it's to capture quote, unquote significant moments of the event. here it was the first kiss. it was the signing of their document and it was the cutting of the ribbon which whatever they do in australia about cutting the ribbon. i'm not sure how that fits. in he missed all of those key moments. may have somebody eating a big shrimp cocktail whatever the shrimp on the barbe down there. >> you can't recreate the kiss. do you during the cocktail hour recreate some of your photographers but not the kiss at the altar. >> this photographer said it was their fault. and the reason was they went in too quick. you have got to lean in, mean it you have got to lean in and mean it. >> shutters like you can take 1400 pictures in a second. they like they have too much of a quick smooch. >> that's why he couldn't get it here is another. you and i probably both know this. with the divorce rate up at

5:04am
admitted he made her up. maybe i should have had you read that gosh, i didn't know what i was getting into. i would have sounded better if i had popcorn in my mouth when i read that meanwhile a new picture emerging this morning of te'o and new girlfriend. this girl is real it was taken months after he thought his online girlfriend died. it's unclear though if these two are now dating or if they were. >> alisyn: or if santa stole her away. >> tucker: or if that's been photo shopped or the actual santa claus in the picture. there is a lot we don't know. >> alisyn: this is the new reality. in a surprising new move, house republicans are expected to vote webs to raise the debt limit for another three months. the g.o.p. says the move would give both chambers of commerce time to pass a federal budget. to apply even more pressure to the president and democrats, republican leaders say if a budget is not passed, they will try to prevent members of congress from being paid. so is this a good idea? let us know what you think. can you find us all on twitter. well, of the mental can man who confessed to killing
5:05am
border was lying. gustavo was brought in for questioning and admitted he was not telling the truth just so he could get more attention. is he being charged in another case of threatening to kill a sheriff in texas. so the t.s.a. is getting rid of those controversial full body scearns scanners. couldn't find a way to get rid of the naked images. this is what everybody was worried about when we first heard about scanners. >> we can't delete them we don't know how. >> alisyn: used x-rays, prompting concerns over radiation. all the scanners will be removed from airports by june. i wonder how much those cost? however, the other full body scanners that stick figures of passengers will still be used. that wasn't actually a punch line. >> clayton: really? >> tucker: i feel safer. perfect scanners, they get the
5:06am
view naked. >> alisyn: keep the images. >> clayton: through story i went through one of those naked scanners they saw my naked body and the machine exploded. true story. let's check when n. with rick reichmuth. >> rick: i want to see the stick figure one. >> clayton: stick figure and someone packing heat on a stick figure. >> rick: feeling very thin today. i like that. here is your temps as you are waking up. not that bad anywhere. big changes happen. midwest last hour. take a look what's about to happen in towards the northeast. these are the two areas that are mostly going to be impacted by the cold air. it's going to make its way out towards the south. today not that bad. everybody into the 40s and 50s. tomorrow you start to see that colder air make its way in from the west getting to 25 in detroit. and then by that should say monday, not tuesday. it's good to be even colder across parts of the coast. by the time we get to tuesday people are going to be seeing highs in the low 20's. cold. coastal areas big cities we're
5:07am
not talking about a snow event along with the cold air a. just cold, no snow. back across the great lakes. there will be snow. wind moving across the lakes: not frozen yet. some of those areas favored with elevation. see significant snowfall. maybe number of feet. 2 to 3 feet of snow by the time we get towards say wednesday. out across the west. just very clear. all that cold air is gone. temps have really warmed up here quite a bit. in fact, we're going to be seeing 70s return all the way across parts of the south. l.a. back to 78 today. not that bad today. it's tomorrow that we start to see the cold air move on. in back to you. >> clayton: thanks so much, rick. let's bring in governor mike huckabee now because when we want to talk about culture and things affecting this country who better to talk about it. >> he wasn't available so i'm here. cha clay governor huckabee is here instead. great to see you as always. we have been talking about lance armstrong, manti te'o. it gets to us thinking when we have these sort of heros we hold in high regard. is there some sort of broader
5:08am
cultural question that needs to be addressed? we hold these heros in high regard. we're surprised when they fall from grace. does it say something about our culture that we hold these individuals in such high regard and maybe don't expect these things to happen? >> i think a lot of americans and a lot of people it's intuitive that we vicariously live our own dreams through people that who do things that we know deep down can never do. whether it's score 100 points in a basketball game or whether it's hit 10 home runs during a game. sometimes we equate heroism with something that is an athletic skill or even entertainment skill. real heroism is when you sacrifice yourself for the better of someone else. not when you simply do something that makes you rich and famous. >> clayton: when we hear from veterans who come back and they never talk about themselves. >> they are heros. they are heros. >> clayton: other people are talking about them. they are never talking about themselves. >> yeah. >> clayton: they always talk about themselves as part of a group that other individuals
5:09am
would have done the same thing i did to save those people. >> we have a crude up value system. let's face it i don't begrudge the fact that madonna can go out in her 50s in skimpy underwear and make $50 million a year. i have to wonder if she is providing thatch value compared to a fighter. of course not. that's our value system. we highly value people who can shake their back side in a provocative way or maybe who can pretend to be somebody as an actor. again, acting is a craft. but the real heros are the people who take great risks to themselves to save a child in icy water. or the people who rush into a fire to bring out an he elderly lady. those are people. we don't put posters of them on our wall and we don't pay them. teamers are heros. think about the teachers and sacrifices they make to become teachers and put up what they put up with.
5:10am
most people people wouldn't become teachers if you gave them a pistol whip and all the tools to control a classroom. it's the reality of our culture these are the scingses that go every 00 heads of a lot of kids on critically accept the idea that their heros on the field are heros in life. how do you explain the fall of something like lance armstrong or the confusion surrounding a story like the one notre dame. >> integrity. at this time it's about honor. you raise your kids to tilt truth. raise them it every decision they make and everything they say has consequences and there is a penalty for not telling the truth. this is what barack obama say teachable moment. this could be a teachable moment for parents to take their young children do you see this man? he lived with millions of dollars and accolades of the world and now his life is disgraced on his tombstone he will never be remembered having won seven tour de
5:11am
france. he will be remembered as a serial liar, as a cheater as a person to it ho betrayed the trust of those closest to him. >> alisyn: lying that trips you up and disgraces you more than the crime. >> yeah. >> alisyn: let's move on to gun control. the president came out and signed 23 executive orders this week and talked about what he would will will push for in terms of eliminating certain types of weapons and magazines. how do you feel about what was announced this week? >> first of all the executive orders were largely cosmetic what basically said was we are going to start doing what we should have been doing all along. we are going to enforce some the federal laws. wow, what a revelation. the tragedy is the other things is he proposing. legislative issues which i hope find themselves quickly disappearing int because they do nothing to prevent crime. they are all about punishing people who haven't broken the
5:12am
law. criminal background checks. 91% fox news poll agree with that. >> criminal background checks. we do background checks now if you get a conceal carry. do you it if you go and buy a handgun. instant background checks is not a big issue. however, if we're going to do background checks on people who are again, legal firearm owners. fine. let's do background checks on people when they register to vote. i have suggested and i'm not being facetious. i think if a person runs for public office they ought to have a background check. let's find out if they have paid their bills. >> alisyn: doesn't the media comb through much of their history? they try to. >> selectively. >> if we are all in agreement that background checks are so important. of course background checks would have stopped none of these shootings. >> no. >> tucker: why is it that this administration has failed to follow up on people whose background checks have prevented them from buying weapons. last year there was over
5:13am
70,000 people who couldn't bay weapon because background check flagged something. of those fewer than a hundred were prosecuted. they are not enforcing existing gun laws. >> well, the fast and furious and i know that it's brought up a lot. but the fact is we helped put seriously dangerous weapons not into the hands of legal citizens but in the hands of drug dealers who ended up murdering people. i think this administration has a lot to account for before it starts asking me to give up the amount of rounds that i can put in a magazine to protect my home and my family. >> alisyn: what do you wish the president president -- what action do you wish the president had talked about or done to actually stop a newtown from happening again? >> if you were president. you ran for president. >> don't remind me it didn't end well. >> would you have said let these things disappear and let's not really not handle this? what specific actions would a president huckabee put forward. >> i was a governor when the
5:14am
jonesboro shooting happened. one of the things we had to look at for example we had laws that needed to be revised because we never anticipated 11 and 12-year-olds committing mass murder. i think you look at are there laws that you don't have that need to be there and are their laws that you have that aren't doing any good? disarming the one group of people who might prevent that is not a good idea. so, you know, the question is: make sure that what you do doesn't do more harm than it does good is the medical version of hippocratic oath. it ought to be applied here. there is no data to suggest that if you reinstate the so-called -- i always use the word so-called assault weapon ban that you will save any lives because it doesn't. we have done it before and it failed. most people don't understand what you are talking about a an assault weapon is cosmetic. i went hunting this week. i went deer hunting. the rifle i used is far more powerful than one of these so-called weapons to be banned.
5:15am
>> tucker: no one is even pretending? >> no. there is no pretense there. >> alisyn: stick around, governor. >> okay. >> tucker: did you think the election was over. the president is putting campaign team back on the the trail and you are paying for it so you say men are superior drivers? yeah. then how'd i get this... [ voice of dennis ] ...safe driving bonus check? every six months without an accident, allstate sends a check. ok. [ voice of dennis ] silence. are you in good hands?
5:16am
5:17am
5:18am
>> tucker: campaign team got president obama elected twice being organized into tax exempt political group. >> the team organizing for action familiar faces robert gibbs, campaign manager. messina. david axelrod and stefanie cutter. >> we heard from gibbs this week on this particular issue if the nra wants to put forward their list we have got our own list. if they want to fight us on this, bring it on because we have got our own list. they are mobilizing because they think they have the people and numbers hind them to do it? >> fine. this is america. people have the right to organize. they have the right to express themselves but i do find one point of this very very amazingly ironic. he they are tax exempt. i thought we were all supposed to be patriotic and pay our
5:19am
fair share. why would the president set up an organization that specifically uses that loophole in the law that allows them to be tax exempt when they could be paying their fair share because this is a multi-million-dollar operation, right? so that puts them in the 1% of organizations across america. i say, mr. president, fine. go ahead and have your organization, pay taxes on it like the rest of us have to when we get out and speak in our businesses and personal lives. >> alisyn: governor, what's the mission statement of this group and how is that going to differ from what the dnc does? >> they will work in concert with the mainstream media to provide a double edge sword so that the president's message is not only on the official networks of record but it will also now be on a pure campaign mode. >> alisyn: i'm picking up what you are putting down with facetiousness: they will be campaigning for the president's issues. >> yeah. i will be honest with you i don't have a problem that they would gin up with a very
5:20am
sophisticated organization to push his agenda. fine. i don't think that's illegal or immoral thing. he has agenda. he wants to push it the point i have is to let it be tax exempt when it is is a purely political operation that i have a problem with. >> tucker: it will be interesting to track the narrowives, the story lines this group puts out and all the various left wing organizations put out with the media story line. >> the "new york times" on one side. >> tucker: you want to make this a conversation about the nra as if they are the ones that shot up schools around the country. don't want to make it about mental health and decline of the culture. make it about nra and the media goes along with that. >> of course they do. i want to ask how many nra members have committed mass murder? >> i don't think any. >> i'm a life member of nra which means i don't have to pay duce -- do you see dues. i'm not a gun nut. i believe in freedom and right to protect myself. i don't want the government saying the criminals are able to have anything they want

>> alisyn: we told you notre dame star linebacker manti te'o breaking his silence last night and denying that he he had any role in that fake girlfriend hoax, other than being a victim. te'o says he was the one duped into believing that he had a real relationship with a girl online. now that we know his side of the story, does it expose the payrolls of -- perils of the social media world. is the internet destroying real relationships. dr. keith ablow a forensic psychiatrist and fox news
5:26am
medical contributor and diana falzon for fox 411. great to have both of you here. dr. ablow, let me start with you. do you think that it is is our social media culture that allows primarily college kids and high school kids to be more susceptible to this kind of hoax? >> absolutely. after all, college kids and younger kids are constantly on facebook where they have people they call quote, unquote friends, hundreds or thousands of them they aren't friends they are fictionalizing differences. they are able to cherry pick the feedback they want and even block people who might comment negatively upon them. and they post photos of themselves, hundreds, sometimes thousands of photos, which would have been unheard of before and contributes to an incredible sense of narcissism and almost delusional existence. >> alisyn: diana, you know this all too well. you run a dating advice column
5:27am
and young people write to you. are you surprised that people think that they have relationships with people they have never met? >> and it isn't just young people alisyn. that's the interesting thing. it cuts through generations. i do have a dating advice column and i cannot get over how many times i get emails from women and men both saying that they are not only dating but sometimes engaged to a man or woman they have never met. and there is a delusion. the writing is on the electronic wall but people just want to ignore it entirely because we have such a desperate need for love that needs to be fulfilled. even if it's not quote, real life. >> alisyn: that's incredible. dr. ablow you heard what diana just said they are engaged to people they never met. does that give you more sympathy and should it give all of us more sim patty for what happened to manti te'o? >> manti te'o has already admitted that even after he he knew it was a hoax and f. it weighs a hoax that he perpetuated because he was
5:28am
embarrassed. people can judge whether he needs psychological help which i think he might. yes, the fact that engaged to those they have never met and fall in love with ghosts should give us all a heads up. we literally have kids who adopt penguins online and grieve over the fact that these, play penguins don't seem happy if they don't play with them enough. this is a set up to lose reality, to not be able to tackle your own problems or those of our culture. it is the greatest drug that this species has known because both diana and i have facebook accounts and, yet, we are identifying it as a dangerous drug. >> alisyn: it's everywhere. diana, you say you have a close friend who was a victim of a very similar hoax. this isn't as rare as we think it is. >> this isn't new, too. this is a good thing that this happened in such a public way because we are discussing it. we are showing that there is a downside to online dating. isn't just happy go-lucky find love. did i have a very accomplished
5:29am
businessman very logical who became illogical or the promise or idea of love. he was ready to go and see this woman he never met. he claimed to be in love with her. bought a plane ticket to find out that she was using pictures that were adrianna lima's and i thought come on, buddy, you have to realize this woman doesn't have a striking resemblance to adrianna lima and this is a fake. >> alisyn: add degree anna lima doesn't have to find love online she has been on our show many times she is lovely. facebook isn't going away. social networking isn't going away. what is the lesson we are supposed to take away from this? >> here is one lesson. it's not just the manti te'os. it's us. we have to do an inventory to find out in which ways we have been intoxicated by these technologies and social networking. the listen is this. if you have got kids get them a pet. let they interact with something real. get them outside.
5:30am
make them compete in sports. don't give them ribbons when they don't win. get back to the truth as antidote to this most terrifying psychological epidemic that can lay low our entire culture. >> alisyn: diana, very quickly last word. >> i would say don't give up on online dating. use logic, be smart. do a background check and don't go weeks and months without actually meeting the person and always always put your safety first. >> alisyn: thank you. fascinating. you guys have revealed a lot that i didn't know. thank you. all right. remember the new york newspaper that posted names of legal gun owners and their addresses? well, what that paper is now doing that has everyone surprised. plus, are your new year's resolutions getting off track one month into the new year? clayton is going to change all of that for new just minutes. he has a gadget. for some people this is just pigskin and thread.

6:03am
girls we have been talking about all week as relates to the manti te'o saga and we're hearing from manti te'o from notre dame and he's given an interview with jeremy schapp on espn and he appears to be a bit of a victim, but says he did manipulate some of the stories so was less embarrassed to tell his parents. >> alisyn: and can i read what he said, i haven't had a chance yet. here is how manti te'o explains how he was duped. i knew that. i even knew that it was crazy that i was with somebody that i didn't meet and that alone people find out that this girl who died, i was so invested in and i didn't meet her as well. so i kind of tailored my stories to, yeah, i met her before she passed away. i wasn't faking it it, i wasn't part of it. when people hear the facts, they'll know, they'll know
6:04am
there's no way i could be a part of this. >> clayton: way to go manti. >> tucker: he convinced me. anybody who could speak a sentence like that, probably incapable of constructing a hoax this complex. >> clayton: it's a little sad. >> tucker: it is. >> clayton: i feel like he was probably taken advantage of certainly, he seems naive in the whole situation, he did lie as he admitted to his father about having met kekua as he said in that interview that he manipulated the timeline when his parents were curious, obviously, she passed away and of course, he went back and wouldn't seem to his family he never met her in the first place. >> alisyn: how did it happen, he did lie to his father about actually meeting his girlfriend and he also, he says, did try to speak with her several times via skype and facetime, when he would call the number, he would only see a black box. you know, you could see his face and then he'd hear a girl's voice and they would have a real conversation, he thought it was malfunctioning at that moment. >> clayton: let me explain
6:05am
something to you. from a technology standpoint. when you try to facetime someone, someone would have to on the other side and take the phone like an iphone the only way to do facetime, have to hide it. it didn't just go black, would have to put it in a pock and someone on the other side was intentionally keeping the screen dark and only hearing a female's voice, on the plot pretending to be this girl, talking on the phone with him on a repeated basis, but never once showing her face. >> tucker: it's possible he was a simple man with regard to technology i am a simple man so i have sympathy for him, but maybe he's a symbol of a generation used to conducting relationships, i'm using air quotes around that, with people online, and people they don't actually spend physical time with. >> alisyn: it's shocking to some of us who haven't lived in the facebook generation as long as some 20 year olds, this is happening more and more and people get to engaged
6:06am
to people they never met. and he explained to espn he tried to meet his girlfriend several occasions every time he showed up where they would meet there was somebody else in her stead, with an excuse why she couldn't be there. >> clayton: this happened to me in college all the time. >> alisyn: i believe it. >> clayton: supposed to meet a girl and find a guy-- >> engaged without meeting each other. >> alisyn: yes, we just heard-->> we had that segment. >> alisyn: it's not just 20-something year olds. in the world of online dating, you could have a fairly intimate relationship albeit not physical, but-- >> i thought it was prisoners. >> and prisoners getting married to people they've never met, just penpals. the story is more and more bizarre. >> tucker: kind of depressing. it's good to sit with people on have a meal with them.

6:10am
stop and this was sort of the argument from republicans going forward, which was, we're going to try to tie the debt ceiling to spending cuts and the president says i was not going to negotiate on that. the debt ceiling is something you guys have voted on, already put all of these bills out there. we need to pay for the bills now. >> tucker: here is what the public says accord to go a fox news poll. 69% want the debt limit raised only after major cuts to federal spending, while 22% say, yes, raise that debt limit, it's reckless not to. the problem is that spending, this is not a figment of anyone's imagination, not a talking point. it's a math question to anyone with google and a handout calculator. the debt is out of control. 16.4, but keep in mind that's an official made up, that's washington accounting, that does not take into account any of the liabilities attached to entitlement spending, so we've promised seniors medicaid and medicare. and promised seniors social security and those are debts
6:11am
and they're not included in the debt number. >> and tucker, isn't it astounding that the republicans who dug in their heels the last time around, when there was a big debt ceiling debate and this time around they said we're not going to give the president is pass, they will for three months, said they're kicking the can down the road again. this is what congress does so well, is that we have a huge looming problem, let's decide on it and deal with it in three months from now. >> tucker: and yes, it's a gimmick, but warms my heart and most american regardless of party feels the same way, if under this proposed bill congress does not cut spending and write up a budget, which they haven't done in three years in the senate, then members of congress will forfeit their pay. don't do your job, don't get paid. >> clayton: you're right to call it a gimmick, and i've never heard you agree with nancy pelosi. >> tucker: it's a wonderful gimmick, i endorse, why not? why are we paying these people if they're not writing budgets. >> clayton: they can't cash a paycheck unless they do their

6:17am
take, you know the love of my life. >> call it the lying game. two huge stories in the world of sports revealed to be totally phony. lance armstrong who now admits to doping after years of denials and lawsuits and manti te'o, the star linebacker at notre dame says he was the victim of an enormous catfish-style hoax, revealing his girlfriend doesn't exactly. >> clayton: and between the two of them, and bonnie burke took to twitter, wrote this, between armstrong and te'o's stories this week, i feel like we've all been slimed. >> alisyn: and she's here and great to have you. let's start with lance. where do you think was the headline of his sit-down with oprah? >> well, it's a two parter and in watching the second part last night, what resonated most with me was that just about the time he started to sound contrite, he said, he deserves to be able to compete
6:18am
again. and his rationale mind that, all the other people who admitted to doping in the sport, they confessed and gave information and only had to serve a six month suspension and he is banned from competing in sanctioned sports for life. >> alisyn: he called it a death penalty? >> no, i don't think so, he had opportunity upon opportunity upon opportunity to come clean and he hasn't and really, this -- he has literally hit rock bottom, personally and financially, and now he's finally. >> tucker: there's no chance he can compete again. >> no, there absolutely is. if he goes to the u.s. anti-doping agency and starts giving names as to the group of people who helped facilitate this huge doping ring, one thing he didn't do during the oprah interview and she asked for names, he said he didn't want to throw anybody out of the bus.
6:19am
>> clayton: will they reduce-- >> it's a lifetime ban, but if he testifies and gives names, the suspension could be-- >> let's talk about the feds. in the second part of the interview, looks like he may have lied to oprah because the u.s. anti-doping agency coming out and basically saying, well, go back, oprah asked him in 2009, in 2010, did you do this? he said no. >> yeah. >> clayton: so he's lawyered up and he says 2005, and there's a statute of limitation, the reason he says 2005. the statute is up. >> if he mentions 2009 and 2010-- >> what it comes down for armstrong he did hesperately was to compete and talked about his family, and the only time he got emotional during the interview when he talked about
6:20am
discussing with his son, and he's 13 years old and defending him in school and he went to him and said don't defend me. and i think this is about competing again. and he has this and that will never die. >> alisyn: and let's talk about manti te'o. and you said you feel slimed. what about his story grosses you out. >> i personally in trying to piece together the information and finally he spoke with an espn reporter last night and sort of laid out his version of the story. what i felt all along is that he was duped. he was a victim of a hoax. that said, he still lied and i wrote a blog about it yesterday on my website, and in just trying to put myself in the mind of a 21-year-old, i know a lot of people our age who date online and not terribly comfortable with it and when they share how these two people got together, sort of fudge the story and manti
6:21am
te'o said the reason why he lied about actually meeting lennay kekua and lied to his father, basically he was embarrassed that he'd developed strong emotional ties to a woman he'd never met before. >> tucker: well, that's a little embarrassing. can we -- what's the outcome, can we trust sports or anything we see into the backgrounds of the people is real? >> i will say this time and time again. we as journalists have to do due diligence, really, there was nothing in this kid's track record throughout his time at notre dame that gave anybody any idea that he wasn't completely honest and genuine, but i think bigger picture, tucker, is that we have a propensity to put athletes on pedestals. and i think we, as adults, and as adults who have children need to be able to differentiate between add hiring what people do on the field of play, and admiring them for people. unless an athlete or somebody of prominence in the sports world says, i want to be

>> fox news alert. minutes ago we just learned that the hostage crisis in algeria could be coming to an end. sky news's alex crawford joins us live from mali, what's the latest you're hearing, alex? >> reporter: well, we heard a few hours ago that the algerian special forces who had circled this remaining group of islamists who's hunkered down inside the gas complex, we heard they were
6:26am
going to begin their final assault. that final assault appear to have started and earlier on we found out that during that final raid on the complex, 16 of the hostages were freed, amongst them two americans, and also, as they were presumably going through the gas compound, they discovered 15 burned bodies as well as 24 corpses which have already been recovered and taken to the company's morgue. we're hearing that although, according to the british foreign secretary that final assault is not yet over, according to algerian news outlets and government sources there, 11 of the militants have been killed, along with the remaining seven hostages. at the moment, there's no idea about the nationalities involved, but still, a very fluid situation and according to the british foreign secretary, it's still ongoing. >> clayton: all right, alex crawford live for us in mali with the latest.

6:28am
therapy and medical intervention their symptoms abated. >> that's just not known. it turns out a wide variety of different outcomes. some individuals have a very good outcome, but this study didn't specifically look at whether particular interventions were associated with the better outcome. >> alisyn: that's the problem. you don't want to give parents of kids with autism false hope, that somehow their children can naturally outgrow it if in fact it was years and years of medicine and therapy. >> right, and the vast majority of individuals with autism don't have this optimal outcome, but in fact, there's a small subgroup which may have the optimal outcome. we don't know, but some people don't seem to make the diagnosis and have pretty good social skills when they're older. >> alisyn: you say social skills, kids able to connect
6:29am
better better eye contact and kids who were socially, you wouldn't be able to detect they were once diagnosed with autism. >> through systemic studies, these people didn't really meet the criteria of autism, but as children they met full criteria for autism so these people have optimal outcome and i think it's a small subgroup of the autism community, but we don't know whether these people have certain compensatory mechanisms or interventions that were good for them. >> alisyn: certainly we need more answers, but certainly a glimmer of hope for parents, but they need to get more information. thank you for breaking it down. >> a pleasure. >> alisyn: remember the new york newspaper that posted the names of legal gun owners and addresses, well, that paper now is doing something that has everyone surprised. then surrounded by the s.w.a.t. team, police officers and choppers swarm the home of

6:48am
the labor unions during his election run for governor. now, that in itself really put a, you know, a finger in the craw of the dnc. and i believe this whole thing is going to bring him into play, where he's going to have to make a decision, whereby he'll alienate his conservative block or alienate the unions. >> clayton: does this hurt victims of sandy? >> oh, yeah, and hurts the economy. needs start-up. we were talking about the possibly of a building boom occurring, especially in the tri state area. >> what's happening now, by the unions blocking out a huge territory, now these young start-up, mom and pop businesses, smaller contractors, can't get started. >> clayton: so it only serves to help, specifically the iron workers union that put this forward. is this only really helps the iron workers. it's not going to help the victims of hurricane sandy and it's not going to help the other small startups looking
6:49am
to start up a small construction business to try to get help off the ground. >> and sets a tone. once a union comes into a certain territory, kind of setting up the frame work and once you do that, it's very hard to try to get in there and establish a company that's nonunion. >> clayton: basically, you're setting up a business on, sort of, as you say, sinister terms. >> yeah, very much so, i believe. >> so instead of a good natured business in the neighborhood coming in, setting up shop, everyone likes that business, they're coming in and basically taking advantage of the situation, am i wrong? >> no, no, you're absolutely right and i've got to tell you, especially after this election, the two groups hurt the most are unions due to poor leadership and the republicans. i think if we bring the two together, that they're really each other's solution. if we had-- you'd be surprised how many rank and file union members are conservatives in nature and we have this huge organic
